Hi Jos,

In NM 0.8.x, NetworkManagerUserSettings does not export the add/delete functionality due to security reasons, as then any application in the user's session could read/write/delete network settings. But NetworkManagerSystemSettings provides those functionality. So if you are in a user session then adding/deleting a connection using NetworkManagerSystemSettings will ask the root password.

Excellent, thank-you, I'd somehow overlooked that functionality on NetworkManagerSystemSettings.  Tried it and it works a treat.  Many thanks! :)
